  I humbly write to solicit for your partnership and assistance in the transfer and investment of 
my inheritance fund USD$17.5M from my late father who died mysteriously last Dec.

It was very evident that he was poisoned to death. In my culture, when a man dies, if he does not 
have a male child, the brothers shares his property leaving both the wife and the daughters empty 
handed including  the house they live in. This is the exact case with me as I am the only daughter 
of my father. I lost my mother when I was barely a year old and my father refused to re-marry 
another wife because he felt solely responsible for my mothers death.

This is so because he concentrated much on his businesses that he rarely pays attention to domestic 
affairs. He was always travelling taking care of his businesses that he did not notice when my 
mother took ill. He thought it was a minor illness and was ignorant of this. My mother on her own 
resorted to self-medication. It was not until the illness degenerated that my father took my mother 
to  hospital where she was diagnosed to find out that hypatitis had eaten deep into her blood 
stream. She didn't last long before she died.

This  happened when I was barely a year old. Based on this, my father could not forgive himself 
easily because of it and said he was responsible for her death as he could have saved her if only 
he had paid attention to the things at home rather than concentrating much on his businesses.

Despite all entreaties by friends and relatives, he refused to remarry but ensured that I had 
everything that I wanted. It was as a result of this that he made me the next of kin to his fund 
deposit with the bank and stated that in the event of any eventuality, I should have a direct 
access to the fund only when I am 25 years of age otherwise I should have a guardian/partner 
intercede on my behalf for the release of the funds to me. Unfortunately, he died late last year 
and I am 19 years of age currently.

This is why I have contacted you to serve as a guardian to me and as my foreign partner for the 
transfer and investment of the fund overseas My uncles does not know about the fund because they 
had already taken my father's houses and other properties because I am a girl and they said I do 
not have rights for any property. They have requested to have  my father's bank papers but I simply 
told them that I do not know where he kept them.The younger brother took the house in the village 
while the houses in the town were sold out they shared the proceed they got from the sale.

Right now i am in the hotel and do sincerely want to travel out of the country. This can only 
happen when I have secured  the release and transfer of the funds into your bank account.This why 
it is  important that we have a plan on the type of lucrative business that we can invest the funds 

I had at various times had discussions with the director of international remittance unit of the 
bank where my father deposited the funds and I was assured that once, I have someone who would be 
willing to receive the funds on my behalf, they shall commence all proceedings to effect  the 
release and transfer of the funds into the person's designated account.

Now, that you have signified your interest to partner with me, it would only be very necessary if 
you contact the bank and request for  the release and transfer of my inheritance fund into your 
nominated account for the purpose of investment and to further have me come over to your country to 
continue with my studies.

I shall be giving you the banks contact details as soon as I hear back
from you, so that you will go ahead and contact the bank,

Your urgent response will be appreciated,

please contact me with this email addres(

Talk to you the more.
